Rozen Maiden (ローゼンメイデン?) The first season ran from 7 October 2004 to 23 December 2004. The second season appeared a year later, it was subtitled Träumend (トロイメント toroimento?, German for "dreaming"), and ran from 20 October 2005 to 5 January 2006. In 2006, a two-episode special titled Ouvertüre (オーベルテューレ ōberutyūre?, German for "overture") was aired on December 22 and 23, further expanding on the background of the characters.

A big favorite of mine (my second favorite to FMA really) I'm curious....how many other people here like the series?

I know Popo does, but not sure about anyone else. It's kinda under the radar unless you know your 4chan.

For those unaware, it's an anime and manga about living dolls called the Rozen Maidens (7 in all...well...technically 8 if you count the fake who are trying to become the perfect girl - called "Alice" - that their "father" is looking for. The only way to do so is to fight each other (keep in mind they're all SISTERS) and take the thing that gives them life, their Rosa Mysticas. So essentially, they must kill each to please Father. There have been two anime series, (the second being called Traumend) and an OAV (Ouverture). The manga recently ended very abruptly at around 8 volumes (rumors are that it was gonna get cancelled anyways, because Peach-pit, the creators, weren't getting along with the magazine that published the series)

There are also very high hopes that this Christmas will bring us a real "end" to the anime. See, the series first aired around Christmas, the second series did the same the next year, and the OAV did last Christmas. Traumend didn't leave a conclusive ending (at least it was better than the manga's confusing crap) so fans are really holding out for a 3rd season this year (or at least a movie - that's what I want to see >3>)


Btw, I find it amusing that they're 7 "living dolls" created by a man they call "Father" only because it reminds me of another certain manga...

Desu!

Yay. <3

I'm trying to remember if it's in the first or second episode where Shinku slaps Jun with her pigtails. Still, the times she gets him like that make me happy. :>

Btw, SUIGINTOU IS TEH BADASS U BE LOVING ON HER. >3>


It's a pretty quick watch too. The first and second series are only 12 episodes each, and the OAV is only two.

This series had an unexpected amount fo win.
Hina-Ichigo's "war" with Suiseiseki was probably the best episode despite lack of Suigintou.

The various OP's are also made of win.

Also: Dual coloured eyes are awesome.

And the second one is better. <3 As is the animation for it. <3 Something about Traumend's opening is just awesome...I love when they show the images of the dolls all 'broken' in synch to the beat. The only thing bad about that opening is no Junk-chan and what Jun was wearing. O_o;


Anyways, the opening songs are:
Kinjirareta Asobi (Forbidden Game)
Seishoujo Ryouiki (Holy Girl Domain)
Baragoku Otome (Rose Jail Maiden)

All sung by ALI-PROJECT.

Also the ending themes....
Toumei Shelter (Transparent Shelter)
Hikari no Rasenritsu (Spiraling Melody of Light)
Utsusemi no Kage (Empty Cicada's Shadow)

All song by kukui.

While I never cared for Toumei Shelter, Hikari no Rasenritsu is one of favorites from the series, and definitely my fave of the endings. The animation for it is also the best of the endings. I get sad when the setting is ripped apart after Bara's face shows up. =<


Oh and did you know ALI-PROJECT and kukui also performed image songs for the doll's individual drama cds? All the songs are really good. :B Suigintou's is the best tho.


And yes, Suiseiseki and Hinaichigo's "war" in episode 5 is the best part of the enitre series. XD

Well, some guys look great in it, the 'Ouji's. My problem was Jun looked stupid with the short vest thing and his legs looked ridiculously long. A longer vest would've sufficed and looked pretty good on him.


So happy that the OAV opening was so Junk-centric. Even when she was in the opening before, it was briefly, so she got the attention she deserved in Ouverture. The Ouverture opening is so Junk-centric you're gonna have a Junk-gasm.


Oh and could anyone upload to youtube for me....Hinaichigo's death in episode 10 of Traumend? I want to show people who probably aren't going to watch the series anyways for uh...various reasons. *cough*get them to see why I chalk it up with our buddy Hughes*cough*

Necromancy, ftw. xP
Bumping this up since there've been a lot of Rozen Maiden discussions in the pennies thread that could be here.

Yeah, what's with the increased chatter? Is the dub airing in America or something?

^Everyone's just so intoxicated by icons of it they go check it out.

The dub isn't airing on tv, but maybe it's getting attention now that Geneon's going out of business???



Neko could I have the full image in your avatar plz? O.O

Oh Gaia I'm pretty sure it's because of the collectible form the last month. The one that lets you be a ball joint doll and a true furfag. I'm sure there are Rozen avatars in avatar arena now, and it might be perking some newbie's interests.



Thank you. <3 Squee~ it's so pretty! 83

It probably is because of that MC. I gave my mule the item though. xP
Speaking of which, there was a Suigintou that won 3rd place in the arena a few weeks ago.

You are quite welcome. As soon as I saw the picture I immediately had to icon it. <3
